Thoughtpicker Witch Discussion

Not sure if it is viable, or worthwhile in your deck, but I found Thoughtpicker Witch which may be something to think about. Stops tutors like Enlightened Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, ect. Also, granted by luck, can stop your opponents enchantments and artifacts before they hit.

Also considering 3x Spawning Pit to replace 4 Thoughtpicker Witch and then -1 Condemn + 2 Disenchant to add anti-Artifact/Enchantment.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'd recommend adding in some strong sac outlets; Cartel Aristocrat and Viscera Seer are both good options. While Thoughtpicker Witch has a strong effect, I find it's generally really important to have your sac outlets be free. If you have the money, I'd also strongly recommend upgrading Duress to either Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. In any case, welcome back to the game!

Aiding, That Thoughtpicker Witch is the perfect response to Approach of the Second Sun that gets so much play in my group. I have been using the Jester's Cap but it was sometimes too much mana. This is definitely the way to go. Thanks!

Dark Confidant might be a decent inclusion, since I don't think I have that many high CMC spells (Blasphemous Act and Insurrection).

I try to shy away from the more staple draw and counter spells, since they both synergise less with the deck's other cards and flavor, which is important (though Rhystic Study could be a flavor hit as well, I dislike playing with the card in general). I'd rather draw cards with Shadowmage Infiltrator than with his effective counterpart Phyrexian Altar, counter spells with Voidmage Prodigy instead of Counterspell and so on.

Goblin Bombardment was close to making the list despite its questionable flavor, though, now I've found more sacrifice outlets through Flesh Carver and Thoughtpicker Witch, I'm quite happy with the amount of them.

Aiding on Meren's Infinite Sacrifice

I also used to run a Meren deck and there are some cards you don't use that I personally found to be quite fun. PREPARE FOR WALL OF WORDS!

(I forget its name atm) The 2CMC Meren that prevents infect and -1/1 counters for infinite persist

Altar of Dementia It is a good sac outlet, mills yourself, or mills your opponents to death (my preferred method of winning) with infinite persist.

Greater Good Kinda is the same thing - sac out, lets you draw and discard junk.

Pattern of Rebirth Kinda was amazing with my deck. Its one flaw is it says the creature needs to hit the yard, so Leyline/RIP effects suck. This has an awesome combo with the next card

Birthing Pod - This card probably is somewhere in your deck, but I didn't see it. It is a great card, it makes your creature curve relevant (kinda important if everything good is a 3 mana thing, nothing on 4, good stuff on 5, for example), and with Pattern, I have won maannny games by patterning my Spore Fog (affectionately known as Fog Frog in my group), and pod-ing it away for 2cmc meren + a persist creature and comboing with a sac outlet.

Mind Slash A little mana intensive, but discard + sacrifice + pain-free thoughtseize was decent.

(this one is a gimmick card but I liked it)

Thoughtpicker Witch- Basically made my "favorite" opponent only draw lands for the majority of the game. Pretty effective on 1v1. Also is an exile win-con when you are infinite persisting. Kind of "win-more," but it can sac itself and come back with Meren EOT to do it again if both cards were non-lands.

TL;DR- Meren "Spore Frog Durdle.dec" was my favorite thing I built for a long while. These are cards I thought were awesome. If you ever wanna try some jank, give these cards a try if you haven't already had them in your deck and I cant see them, or if you feel like a card is being weak and you want to try something new!

Firstly I like the deck build in that even with meren off the field you have serious threat. +1 Upvote

Here are a few things I would recommend for the deck.

Lands --
Dryad Arbor - Meren loves the creature to abuse. Drop a forest for it. Works well with Crucible of Worlds and its creature counterpart.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - You have plenty of and permanents to get positive on devotion.

Westvale Abbey  Flip - Here's a land, wait it's a demon.Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Seriously? Drop a swamp for this.

Creatures --

Thoughtpicker Witch - She can shut out an opponent for a while, also an immediate target for exiles and a 1 cmc that can sack itself.

Mindslicer - This is fun against blue.

Ramunap Excavator - Another Crucible of Worlds.

Creakwood Liege - Buff your creatures and get your tokens.

Phyrexian Obliterator - Effectively requires removal for decks that win with combat, otherwise it gets nasty.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury - This new guy allows you to remove parts of their deck for use against them. Nifty.

Deathcap Cultivator - Self explanatory.

Enchantments and Artifacts --
Contamination - You can effectively win on the spot against decks without black.

Deadbridge Chant - Gets a lot of things into graveyard and brings stuff back.

Phyrexian Altar - A sack outlet for .

Instants and Sorceries --

Tooth and Nail - It can help immensely with finding an answer or wincon.

Jarad's Orders - An easy creature to grave, plus one to hand.

Also Also, while it's strategically useful, you could also remove a bunch of the cards that do discard effects, like Black Cat, Thoughtpicker Witch, and Mesmeric Fiend. While this doesn't speed up the deck, it removes some of the biggest hate-generators. People can get mad at you for screwing them over, but can they really get made at you for not dying?
